Both Zimbabwean representatives in the Big Brother Amplified (BBA) house, Vimbai Mutinhiri and Wendall Parson, are up for eviction from the house this Sunday.
In a twist of events, three housemates, Hanni (Ethiopia), Luclay (South Africa) and Karen (Nigeria) refused to take part in the nomination session on Monday effectively putting themselves on the chopping block for eviction on Sunday.
Hanni said she did not have the right to decide on who should stay or leave the game, while Luclay did not have a clear reason why he was not nominating anyone. Karen simply told Big Brother to put her name up for possible eviction.
Fortunately for Karen, her countryman Vina was Head of house. She saved Vina and replaced her with Lomwe (Malawi) who was not part of the nominated housemates.
This means the Zimbabwean duo of Wendall and Vimbai may be evicted from the game on Sunday if they do not gather enough votes.
Other housemates who are on the chopping block are Hanni (Ethiopia), Kim (Zambia), Lomwe, Luclay, and Millicent (Kenya). Those who will survive this Sunday will be guaranteed tickets to the BBA finale which will see two lucky housemates walking away with a grand prize of $200 000 each.
People can vote via sms by sending the word “vote” followed by the housemate’s name to Econet number 33334 or NetOne number 15626. One can vote 100 times by sms per cellphone number during each voting period.
To vote via the website, one can register on DStv Connect using the www.mnetafrica.com/bigbrother website. Voting on the website or wapsite is absolutely free and one is allowed to vote once per hour during the voting period.
Meanwhile, recently evicted BBA housemate Bernadina (Namibia) says she believes there are no real relationships in BBA.
Speaking to NewsDay after her eviction, Bernadina made it clear it was not possible for housemates to have genuine relationships while in the house.
“Everyone in the house will be playing the game and can go to the extremes to make sure their strategy works. Others initiate relationships as part of their strategy,” she said.
She added that she was confused about this year’s relationships because it was not clear as to who was manipulating who for the money.
“You’d be shocked to hear of nasty things people do for money. There is no time for relationships in the house,” said the Namibian housemate.
She said she was putting her money on Karen (Nigeria) and Lomwe (Malawi) to win the show as she felt they were genuinely loving people with true hearts compared to other housemates.
